 Alexander S. Macaulay, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-417
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 21, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender LaNelle C. DuRant, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott and Susan Olmert Porter, both of Columbia; and Solicitor Robert Mills Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kenneth Scott Pope appeals his guilty plea to two counts of trafficking methamphetamine.  The plea judge sentenced him to seventeen years imprisonment for each charge to run current.  Pope argues the plea judge erred in giving Pope an unconstitutionally disproportionate sentence.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), we dismiss[1] Pope’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., CURETON and GOOLSBY, A.J.J., concur.  


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
